Administrative Structure, Effectiveness, and Efficiency. A Prospectus for Research in Organizational Aspects of Education.
Mohr, Lawrence B.; And Others
The underlying hypothesis of this paper is that the efficiency and effectiveness of educational organizations are affected by their structure. Primary emphasis of the paper is on investigating the link between organizational structure and organizational outputs in an effort to understand why different educational organizations are structured differently with respect to goals, decision-making, and so forth. Because the paper is intended to stimulate future research by organizational theorists, it is organized into seven sections that correspond to topical subareas within organizational theory. These sections focus in turn on the following topics: organizational goals; participation in decisions, decentralization and community control; administrative intensity; environment, structure, and strategies of control; interorganizational analysis; and methodologies of administrative experiments.
